Notes to Myself

See Euripides, Trojan Women 1085 (tr. David Kovacs), for an example of asyndetic, privative adjectives: "Unburied and with no lustral water" (ἄθαπτος ἄνυδρος). The translation obscures the asyndeton.

On deforestation see T.R. Glover, "The Greek and the Forest," pp. 29-50 of his The Challenge of the Greek (New York: Macmillan, 1942).
